This has been uploaded before, but hopefully this upload has better picture quality....if it doesn't, I promise to delete it. A 1950s panel show featuring young kids answering questions and problems sent in to the show. Yes, this is the infamous episode where a child reveals she has been given the questions in advance. There are perhaps 3 or so other surviving episodes...I'd love to see them.

A collection of 1950s television clips (edited together by me!), featuring singers that Prince Vegeta hasn't heard of. Some of these singers were well-known at the time and are still remembered by those alive at the time. Some of these singers are noteworthy in some way. Some of them were obscure then and obscure now. Some of them don't matter in the slightest. But all of them are very talented! Over 20 singers, with clips from 14 different television series.
